Ep. 68 Shownotes: Tap Into Your Whispers with Petra Kolber

Quote:  “Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever.”   ~Ghandi

What a great quote to affirm us LIVING and LEARNING every day during these precarious times. Now more than ever do I want you to focus on being positive, staying active, eating right, staying in gratitude, and getting your mind right. 

Today, I’m joined by my friend Petra Kolber, who is an enlightened spirit of energy, positivity, and love. She epitomizes someone who has overcome perfectionism, fear, and anxiety and shares all of this in today’s episode. 

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How to be a passionist instead of a perfectionist.
  • How to take calculated risks in the craziest of times to manifest your ultimate destiny.
  • How to tap into your whispers and answer the scariest of them.
  • How to find peace within yourself, despite tumultuous times.
  • Top lessons learned from her 2-bouts of cancer.

Buckle up and enjoy the conversation. I think it will allow you to think deeply, reflect soulfully, and ultimately touch your spirit. Be sure to tap into your whispers today–there is profound wisdom waiting to speak.
